The Formats and download options window opens. Select the Code lists tab.

Code lists can be downloaded under two file formats:

  • Text (.TSV, .CSV) format

  • SDMX (.XML) format

Options for Text format (TSV and CSV files)

Depending on the type of text file which must be generated, one must select one of these field delimiters:

  • Tab: The data in the provided file will be separated with a tabulation character. This will provide a TSV file.

  • Comma: The data in the provided file will be separated with a comma (,) character. This will provide a CSV file.

Options for SDMX format (.XML)

Click on SDMX (.xml, .csv) to download the Data Structure Definition (DSD), i.e. the structure of the data of the current dataset in XML format.

It is possible to download the code lists in the SDMX 2.1 format.
